Artist Georgina Allen’s exhibition of windswept landscapes and wistful still lifes fills the walls of a Fulham gallery until 25 March.
Still Life & Pembrokeshire Landscapes, features 80 works – mainly oil on board or oil on linen – celebrating the majestic power of nature, and the contrasting calm of beachcombing.
It runs at the Piers Feetham gallery in Fulham Road, opposite the main entrance to Stamford Bridge, Tuesday-Friday 10am-6pm and Saturday 10am-1pm.
Georgina has shuttled back and forwards to Wales from her home in Surrey for more than a decade to create the distinctive paintings. “I like the light of Pembrokeshire,” she said. “It’s wonderful there; a place I love.”
In those 10 years she has built a close relationship with the Piers Feetham gallery. This is her fifth solo exhibition to be staged there, although she has also exhibited at the Royal Academy and the Mall Galleries.
Beachcombings of weatherbeaten wood, bones, eroded pebbles and shells – many found with the help of her exuberant assistant, a feisty black Pug called Maud – mingle with sumac cones, feathers, leaves, and butterfly wings to form the still life subjects.
A carpet of potential choices covers the floor of her first-floor studio, vying to catch her eye for the next painting.
